Many people ask for the truth, but what they really are asking for is a watered down, kind, gentle, softer edged version of the truth.
The version that makes hearing it less fearful and more hopeful.
I’m done being surrounded by those that can’t speak their truth, or at a minimum, have enough respect and trust in me to tell me the truth about my own work.
I may not have many friends, but I want to make sure those in my own trusted inner circle, provide constructive feedback to help me be my own best version of self.
If not, that what is the point in showing up to change the status quo?
Healthcare doesn’t need more “YES” people. Healthcare doesn’t need more mediocrity. Healthcare needs people willing to ask the tough questions, show up daily, do the work, and make art.
I intend to continue making a change in healthcare at the N of 1.
Patient by patient.
